No doubt, Arsenal have developed numerous youngsters that have turned world-class material. Manager Arsene Wenger is famed for this.
Hector Bellerin is the latest sensation that Wenger has helped grow into a multimillion-dollar project aside past stars like Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott etc. However, for any of these stars, there are several prodigies that turned into “failures.”
Denilson who was once a former Arsenal favorite now plies his trade over at Cruzeiro on loan.
He was amongst players for his team AL Wahda in the United Arab Emirates, before being shipped out to Cruzeiro to make space for a new mystery signing.
Former Arsenal midfielder Denilson recently sealed a move back to Brazilian football with Cruzeiro.
After having previously failed on his return to Brazil, the midfielder moved out of the country once again with Middle East outfit Al-Wahda. After having primarily played his football within Brazil, this was a major shock for the player. There were numerous reports claiming to portray the unhappiness of the player in the hot deserts of the Middle East. After several negotiations, Denilson secured a return back to Brazilian football but not with São Paulo as expected.
It is becoming increasingly likely that Denilson will be leaving Al Wahda in the days to come.
Indeed, the club has announced that they will be making a marquee signing in order to replace the departing Brazilian. Denilson joined the club almost one year ago when he signed from Sao Paulo and helped the team won the Arabian Gulf final. After the final Denilson stated that he wanted to stay with the club for at least another year but it appears that there have been some changes in the relationship between the player and the club.
Denilson, who is one of the biggest names in Brazilian football, is selling the online Poker brand after he was signed by the second biggest online poker website 888poker.
Denilson has stated that he wants to play in the AFC Champions League with his club Al Wahda next season.
He said that he was very happy playing for the club and that he would want to stay with the club next season.
Denilson still has 2 years left on his contract with Al Wahda, but he has yet to talk with the president about next season. He said that at the moment he does not know whether he will be playing for the club again next season.
Al Wahda have benefited immensely by splashing the cash on former Arsenal midfielder Denilson, as the Brazilian helped the club win their first major trophy in four years.
Al Wahda lifted the Arabian Gulf Cup by getting a 1-0 victory over Al Shabab. Previously, Al Wahda had gone four years without winning a major honour and this was a main factor in the club signing Denilson from the Brazilian league. Many were sceptical about the defensive midfielder improving the team, but it was Denilson who opened the scoring after just 16 seconds.
Former Arsenal midfielder Denilson recently brought his spell in Brazilian football to an end by joining Middle East outfit Al Wahda.
Thiago Silva reckons Brazilian Football is in a decent state and some of the criticism that the players are receiving these days is uncalled for.
The Selecao seem to have lost the trust of the people and the media back home after their displays on the field in the last one and half years.
After the thrashing Germany loss in 2014, which was hugely embarrassing for the Football fraternity in the country, Brazil has had a couple of failures in the recently finished 2015 as well.
Former São Paulo and Arsenal midfielder Denilson recently signed with Middle East outfit Al Wahda. He has moved to Al Wahda for around £ 3 million from São Paulo after recently making his move to the Brazilian club permanent.
